This morning as we come to the Lord's table and we find in the table a picture of the gospel on a picture force in these elements of what Christ is done what is accomplished on behalf of his people, and we know that the gospel is the good news of pardon to the guilty and it does not regard a different degree of guilt and those in whom he it addresses it reveals an atonement and when you think of atonement.  Think of the words of satisfaction.  A reconciliation that do the work of Christ when he accomplishes reconcile this to a holy God.  When we had a righteousness and holiness of our own.  It reveals a total of the gospel sufficient for all and every center of the human race is commanded to receive is a faithful saying that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.  The gospel doesn't he just the way our own foundation fireworks for ourselves, but it informs us of the sure foundation that God has laid in Zion, a pond which all of us equally invited are commanded to build our hopes and trust upon the gospel is generally misunderstood today by those who profess to believe a they view it as a way of making up for their own thing for their deficiencies in the merits of Christ with this, according to the word of God is simply another gospel, the gospel of Christ is addressed to those who are far from righteousness, have no merit of the room.  Those are poor, blind and naked, and have no merit to recommend them to the favoring grace and mercy of God.  Christ came as the word tells us not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.  And if we are not sinners with nothing to do with the gospel is of no interest to us and if we are sinners was not reject the counsel of God's word, by supposing that anything about Hoskins is claimed to his mercy and grace anything that we can do the cause him to love us or less.  I also falsely think the our sins are too great to be forgiven.  No matter what they are the righteousness of God is altogether, irrespective of our obedience.  When we say that again.  The righteousness of God is altogether, irrespective of our obedience are working on merit.  The thief upon the cross was saved by faith in Christ, and none shall enter heaven and any other way.  Let us something to either have or shall obtain something they which might entitle us to the favor of God.  Let us therefore, God, with Republicans, prayer, we recall recent God be merciful to me a sinner and let us look for his mercy to the cross of Christ.  Although the Scriptures are clear on this subject.  It's the stumbling block is referred to as foolish, foolish as to many of those who hear the gospel.  It offends her pride can see them put upon a level of the outcasts of society's early.  They think the some difference will be made, but they are wrong.  Not knowing the Scriptures.  Understanding the ducks of sin of the grace of God is revealed in the gospel.  They view the gospel is kind of a bargain which God proposes to make with us creatures on certain conditions.  He will accept them on fact is the message of reconciliation addressed all of mankind declaring a full atonement for sin has been made upon the cross.  It invites every center of an arms race to approach God and her father to Christ Jesus.  When Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness.  It was a remedy equal is adapted for all that it did that letter that I just been received, or whether that poison had affected the body is by looking to the serpent, the patient was healed in reference to this picture.  Argos is looking to me and be saved.  All the ends of your friend got a nurse.  No one else I just got in a savior, there is none beside needs while the gospel is the proclamation of pardon is addressed the sinners without exception, an invitation to the guilty to take shelter in the shed blood of atonement is the power of God's salvation is only to those who believe and trust in Christ alone, for God's people, but it is wrong to talk of being justified by Christ's righteousness and lesser archer purified by faith we been looking at that in her Sunday morning studied the first John, we may profess faith in Christ we are slaves of sin, we may see ourselves and think that we are trusting and righteousness while we're living after the flesh, the Scripture warns us that every branch in the bind that does not bear fruit shall be cast fire and if we believe Christ's gospel that gospel.  The good news that will actually work in our hearts.  According the first Thessalonians chapter 2.  The gospel is in effect for actual changes taking place in the new covenant, establishing Christ blood God removes installing Hardy puts in the heart of flesh.  These cause you walk in my ways.  I created you and your good works and you have a new nature.  Now a new heart and 20 be manifested in revealed that the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5 are manifested in every true child of God's heart.  If we believe Christ's gospel that is where trusting in Christ God is doing a sovereign work upon our inner man in our souls, and then brought to life it will eventually work in our hearts and teaches that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts.  It teaches us that we should live soberly righteously ungodliness from Roland, if what we believe, does not produce is affected is not the troopers got in which your standing.  The Scriptures quite clear on these things every doctrine that does not produce this effect is a delusion in the comfortable which you derive from it is nearly assumption you're being seen.  You shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sin, according to the Scripture we been delivered the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of light were new creature new creation.  The creatures in Christ Jesus.
Be manifested in a life as we been learning one of obedience, one living for the glory of God.  One of learning to thyself, not my will be done.  Lord, your will be done were on a growing process of doing this direction were heading in the reason what we observe the Lord's table, because we do it every week because we need to encourage ourselves to stay focused on price.  Stay focused on the Gospels.  They focus on the cross and understanding the redemption reconciliation in the adoption that we have, to a crisis… We have done that Christ would be exalted, he would be glorified manifested among his people in his church.  These are things that lead the heart and confidence assurance bullets joy, peace and contentment is focusing on price and what he's done with over and completed nothing to be added to the John Toles from Hebrews we need to work hard and resting in Christ, and these are things you can meditate on these truths of these are pass up this morning what they reflect work hard at rushing in Christ and has finished perfecting work in the gospel and apprehend Christ alone the Christ.  We do this to face the men would come forward.  We saw this morning that the modern-day gospel says that God loved us because we were such global people now contrary, that is to the work of God the Word of God described as being rebels living a life in rebellion.  This is where in Cuba God were separated from God were at enmity with God by nature we hate God, and we prefer darkness walking in the light of the Scripture does say God is love.  He is a loving God and the he so loved his people not in what he saw what he saw as potential.  But in spite of the fact that they were by nature children of wrath.  The Scripture says, even when we were enemies, Christ died for us.  God is love.  Because of who he is not because of we are worthy of being loved, but in spite of not being worthy that shows the magnificence of our Lord and God so loved the world that he gave his son that whosoever believes in him shall be saved.  That's amazing love what wondrous love is this anything but deserving of mercy and grace of God that he freely bestows all turn repent from their sin trusting Christ alone for salvation.  He freely gives the so as we partake of this representation of Christ, but body in this representation of the shed blood.  Think about that price all, nothing good in many other than what he was going to do.  I had no desire for God.  I no desire to live for his glory by his grace and his mighty power.  He's changed me and my desire is walk in obedience and live for his glory and proclamation of his Kenyan gospel.  We don't do that perfectly, but we are looking for is returned when the sweetest thing that Hamlin saved to sin no more.  What a glorious day that will so we need to keep her eyes focused on that as we partake of these elements one Christ is achieved all rights therein.  Of this Christmas spirit of first producer pharmaceutical Lord that which I also delivered you that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which he was betrayed, he took the bread and when he had given thanks, he broken, he said, take, eat this in my body, which is broken for you.  Do this in remembrance of me.  And in the same manner.  He also took the cup after supper he set this up is the new covenant in my blood.  This do as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.  Jim come back and leaders in another song of worship.  Remember this week when life gets tough.  Remember the Lord Jesus and what he's done

Before the Throne of God Above

Before the throne of God above,
I have a strong and perfect plea,
A great High Priest whose name is "Love,"
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart;
I know that while in heav'n He stands
// No tongue can bid me thence depart.//

When Satan tempts me to despair,
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there,
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God, the Just, is satisfied
// To look on Him and pardon me.//

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
The King of glory and of grace!
One with Himself I cannot die,
My soul is purchased by His blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
// With Christ, my Savior and my God.//

One with Himself I cannot die,
My soul is purchased by His blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
// With Christ, my Savior and my God.//
